Conversation with myself
Me: You haven’t been out for your walk today.
Self: Ya, about that, it’s cold AND windy.
Me: You said, and I quote, “Rain or Shine”
Self: Ya, well, it’s not raining AND it’s not shining.
Me: That’s a loophole.
Self: Ya, that’s right, it is. Your point?
Me: My point is, you promised to go out for a walk every day.
Self: Does 45 minutes in the pool count?
Me: hmmm, I don’t know. I need more.
Self: I’ll pull an old photograph and work with it.
Me: Okay, but that photo had better be a good one.
Of winter’s lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer’s secret
Deep down within its heart.
